Beckhoff at ISH 2017

Leading edge in Building Automation: with IoT from Beckhoff.

From 14 – 18 March, Beckhoff will be at ISH 2017 showing how energy-efficient heating, air-conditioning and building technology can be further optimised using simple IoT integration. Open, PC-based control systems from Beckhoff are already being used in building automation systems all over the world, where they fully exploit any potential savings. Here, Beckhoff not only offers a comprehensive control solution for all areas, but also retrofittable IoT products for easy and secure cloud connectivity. Manufacturers, system integrators and operators all derive many benefits from direct IoT integration into the standard building control system: faster engineering, centralised, cloud-based energy data analysis, clear trend visualisation and simplified handling of big data.

Visit Beckhoff in Hall 10.3 at Booth C41 where our experts will be demonstrating how future operator models and future-oriented building automation concepts can already be implemented today.

Comprehensive cloud connectivity with Beckhoff IoT.

IoT communication can be integrated into the standard control platform with TwinCAT IoT both for new projects and retrofits. Cloud connectivity can be either established using a Beckhoff controller or a third-party system – and also directly via the EK9160 IoT Bus Coupler. Communication is easy and secure, and supports standardised protocols such as AMQP, MQTT and OPC UA. The TwinCAT IoT Communicator App offers immediate mobile access to TwinCAT process data. TwinCAT Analytics ensures seamless and cycle-synchronous data acquisition – providing a basis for predictive maintenance and trend analyses. TwinCAT IoT, TwinCAT Analytics

Efficient engineering for all systems: with TwinCAT Building Automation.

Efficient engineering for all systems: with TwinCAT Building Automation.

The software package TwinCAT Building Automation makes it possible to efficiently implement all the technical building facilities of a modern building automation system. Extensive functional templates and PLC libraries reduce engineering costs. TwinCAT Project Builder applies specific rules to assign names to each data point and each program block so as to automatically create comprehensively structured TwinCAT project files.

New interface for BACnet MS/TP.

As well as BACnet/IP, with the EL6861 interface Beckhoff now also supports BACnet MS/TP. This serial interface can be used to directly control and monitor BACnet-compatible field devices – pumps, drives, frequency converters, etc. – as sub-bus systems, without the need for additional gateways or routers. Up to 64 devices with RS485 low power transceivers can be connected. Several terminals can be operated in parallel to scale the number of MS/TP channels that can be supported. BACnet
